How Do We See the Human in Biodiversity and Extinction Narratives?
Timothy Sweet

In Extinction and the Human: Four American Encounters, Timothy Sweet examines the force of human impact on megafauna—mammoths, whales, bison—and the often divergent Native American and Euro-American stories about that impact. Reflecting on questions of agency, responsibility, and moral assessment, the talk will engage with some consequences of thinking of humans as fundamentally separate from the rest of the natural world.
